We recommend to visit the square in the evening because is very nicely lightened, all the stores are opened and you can find many very tasty sweets, mulled wine and good food. It is a must see place in Sibiu. We will come back here for sure.

Very interesting square, with all the historical buildings. There also quite a few restaurants if someone wants to eat something.

It's a great place for an evening walk. It's a peaceful and romantic atmosphere, and the lights give it a magic spirit.

this is really the center of the town, with the view of the national art museum, the cobble stones, and these colourful buildings, most of them historical monuments

Wide square where you can find multiple restaurants and terraces. Beautiful during the spring and summer. There are some attractions near by like the Brukenthal Palace.

I liked the Square full of lights and traditional cottages with local or internațional products. I didn't like the carrousels and the cars Game - It didn't belong there.
